About us

heatbeat engineering is a spin-off from the Institute for Energy Efficient Buildings and Indoor Climate of RWTH Aachen University. Since 2017 we apply innovative methods for the dynamic simulation of district heating and cooling networks to real-world projects.

We use next-generation simulation models and innovative process automation to simulate and optimize the dynamic operation of heating and cooling networks.

In addition to our principle office in Nuremberg, we returned to Aachen with the founding of our subsidiary company heatbeat nrw GmbH in 2020. This strengthens our abilities for innovation regarding the simulation and optimization of district heating networks as well as our presence in North Rhine-Westphalia with its strong economic and scientific activities.

We are a young startup and always looking for motivated people to join us for challenging projects, to advance our modeling approaches, and to shape the future of heatbeat engineering together.

Together we work at the intersections of complex energy system design, innovative modeling and simulation, and the challenges of digitization, data analysis and web technologies.
